About TESB

Welcome to The Ear Stretching Bible website! You’re in the right place if you:

  • Want to stretch (“gauge”) your ears but aren’t sure how to start
  • Are stuck in the ear stretching process and need some answers or alternative methods
  • Are mystified about terms like SSS, PTFE, or LITHA
  • Have any questions about stretching your lobes, like How long should I wait between stretches?, Is acrylic safe for stretching? or What’s the taping method?

This kind of information is scattered around the web, and you could eventually find all the answers by spending hours searching, or interviewing professional piercers in your area and asking them their opinions. But until now, there hasn’t been a central resource where you could easily find the answers to all your ear stretching questions.

With The Ear Stretching Bible website book, I hope to solve that problem and give you a complete guide and resource all in one place.

The articles on this site, and the info in the upcoming book, are meticulously researched and unbiased. I’ll present all sides of controversial issues in the ear-stretching and body modification community, and let you make your own decisions with the information. I’ll be interviewing experienced professional piercers and body mod enthusiasts with years of experience in stretching their lobes, and pass their wisdom and advice on to you.
